Have we helped you in anyway?

MoDiP is interested to record the different ways we have had an impact on our audience. 

We would like to hear from you if we have had an effect on the way you think about plastics or if our practices have made you think about how you do things. 

We would be grateful if you could spare us a few minutes to fill in a short survey.
